A first year Lighting Design graduate candidate at The University of Tennessee, Tannis Kapell is overjoyed to open his first lighting design for the theatre department with A Shayna Maidel. He recieved a BFA in theatre design and technology from the University at Buffalo, and thought he had escaped snow by moving down south. Turns out he was wrong. Tannis would like to thank the other designers, Terry, and the rest of the cast and crew for coming together to make such a wonderful production of A Shayna Maidel.
